Easiest Appetizer EVER – Cream Cheese & Olive Crescents

This recipe is so easy, it’s almost embarrassing……..I don’t even know if I should call it a recipe.

Yesterday I wanted to make something super yummy for my daughter and I for lunch (my 2-year old loves olives).  I was kind of in a comfort food sort of mood (what’s new, right?) and this is what I came up with and boy was it good!!

Cream Cheese & Olive Crescents
1/2 brick cream cheese
Marinated olives, chopped – I used an olive muffaleta spread, but olive tapenade would work well
1 package crescent rolls

  19. My mind has officially been blown. I’m serious. This is the most brilliant thing I’ve seen in a long time!!! I HAVE to make these for Easter, my dad would flip for them!!


  20. hahaha I see that you’ve also made the olive cheese bread. That’s how I know my dad would go crazy for your recipe here – he went completely nutso over the bread when I made it. He literally couldn’t stop talking about it!
